Chemists reveal how tau proteins form tangles

One of the hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease is the presence of neurofibrillary tangles in the brain. These tangles, made of tau proteins, impair neurons' ability to function normally and can cause the cells to die.

Stealth nanomedicines combat cancer and cut toxic effects of chemo

Nanomedicines—typically drugs hidden within nanoscopic fatty membranes ('liposomes')—have potential to transform chemotherapy treatments, improving drug delivery and reducing toxic side effects for thousands of cancer ...

Polar ice contaminated with nanoplastics

Decades-old polar ice contains significant amounts of nanoscale plastic particles. Studying ice cores from Greenland and Antarctica, an international team of scientists have identified several types of nanoplastic particles, ...
